"I want to give haute couture a kind of wink, a sense of humour—to introduce the whole sense of freedom one sees in the street into high fashion; to give couture the same provocative and arrogant look as punk—but of course with luxury and dignity and style." So says Yves Saint Laurent, the fashion designer who, for over a quarter of a century, has been hailed as a fashion genius—"the master of the streets of the world" as Diana Vreeland puts it. Here are more than 200 of his greatest designs, dramatically reproduced in colour and black and white. Also included are a revealing autobiographical essay by Yves Saint Laurent himself and fascinating insights by Catherine Deneuve, Paloma Picasso-Lopez, Marella Agnelli and others.
